About Ranna's Spirit Lines - 2013 & 2014

Eternally preoccupied with the spiritual and mysticism, and the elusiveness of expressing ineffable spiritual or mystical feelings and experience through art, Ranna has regularly harnessed together her science-based refractive techniques of her signature Shimmer Art™ method, her Ei-shodõ technique, and mystical expression from East Asia and South Asia.

These Spirit Lines pieces (© Ranna®, mixed media on canvas, 60" x 48") give shimmering, light-laden form to Verses in "One Hundred Poems of Kabir" (translated by Tagore, R., & assisted by Underhill, E., MacMillan & Co., 1915). Kabir, 1440-1518, was a mystic and poet of India, revered equally by Sikhs, Hindus, and Muslims.

RANNA'S STATEMENT ABOUT SPIRIT LINES

Words have power.

Compare your immediate response to the word "gentle" and the word "violent", or the word love" and the word "hate". Imagine that someone said these words to you, that you heard the sounds of those words with the charge that they carry. Words have power.

Across the globe and throughout history there is a universality of concepts of the ineffable and sacred invested in words. The syllables of ancient India's Sanskrit were originally sacred sounds, long before script was developed. The syllables were chanted to bring-in or attune with the frequency of the particular sacred transmissions carried by the sounds. This migrated to China as Ch'an and to Japan as Zen. In the Occident there is that launching statement ,"In the beginning was the Word", known also as the Logos of the Greeks.

Ultimately, these sacred sounds took form as the written word, embodying the frequency of the sound-word.

Here, in Spirit Lines, I am working with these concepts of the ineffable or sacred embodied in words, formed by script-lines, strung together as other lines, forming fields of frequency-carrying lines moving through the canvas-space, and outward to whomever receives...
